North Mast Pond, 1702
Scheduled Ancient Monument
In the age of sail fir logs for mast-making were first seasoned by storing them under water in the mast ponds. This allowed the sap to die back without the resin drying out. The Dockyard had two mast ponds — today the North Mast Pond is the only one left intact. The South Mast Pond was filled in during the late 19th century and now lies under the gravel overflow car park.
Behind the North Mast Pond lies the Lower Boat House. Originally built during the 1840's as a shed for 'sided timber' - logs that that had been sawn into planks or baulks in the Brunel Saw Mill. It was later adapted to become a boat house, a building where small ships boats were made, repaired and stored.
